Former NHL defenceman Al Iafrate appeared in 799 regular-season games over his 14-year career.
He scored 152 goals, had 463 career points, was a four-time All-Star and held the NHL record howitzer - a 105.2mph slap shot - for more than 16 years.
He also had an eye for the very talent he made famous with the Leafs, Capitals, Bruins and Sharks.
"I played with Max Iafrate growing up and I would skate with him and his dad a couple times in the summer," fellow Michigan native and current Winnipeg Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba said.
"Al actually pulled me aside when I was 14 or 15 and talked to me and my dad. He said he saw something in me, and that something could happen one day with my skill level. My dad didn't really think anything of it and neither did I, but looking back at it now, it's kind of a cool thing that happened - it really was the start of it all."
